At the Claremont Packing House, a shopping/dining/learning/living mall in Claremont CA. This is all built in an old historic building that was a packing shed for either peaches or lemons--long before what it is today.These photos are not in very good order and I can't arrange them well, but I'm going to post them as I can, because if I wait till I figure out how to make them look better, it will never happen! You will definitely see magic in what has been done with a very awkward space. . .
Miracles CAN happen!

|A Community art center for all ages|
|Some of the shops and restaurants. . . .|
|A bookstore of donated books, with proceeds going to the Prison Literacy Project|
|One of the restaurant menus|
|A very old door that must be original to the building--it hangs on the 2nd floor landing|
|A huge project made from folded, twisted cardboard boxes etc.|
|There's a comedy club on the second floor too|
|There is a great yarn shop on the second floor|
|And a piano studio on the second floor, too.|
|Looking down on the first floor from the second. On the 3rd level, are Loft living spaces!|
